The Chinese Version of Ghetto at the Center of the World Hits Shelves

《世界中心的貧民窟:香港重慶大廈》, the Chinese version of Prof. Gordon Mathews's book Ghetto at the Center of the World: Chungking Mansions, Hong Kong has become one of the best sellers in Hong Kong! (For more details of the book, please click here.)

In two book sharing sessions held in March, Prof. Gordon Mathews talked about his experiences with Chunking Mansions from an anthropological perspective. Nicole Yang, translator of this book and also our alumna, Prof. Simon Shen (沈旭暉) as well as some of Prof. Mathews' informants joined the discussion.
